General Motors sales continued a strong move, up 12% in June and 4% year to date. Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers reported total sales of 27,865 vehicles in June, a 12% increase from one year ago. Sales gains were led by the Chevrolet Cruze, with GM’s passenger cars and crossovers posting strong gains across the line-up, including record sales for the Canadian-built Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain. As noted, building on consistent year-to-date growth, retail sales for GM’s four brands improved 4%. “We’ve set out to design, build and sell the world’s best vehicles, and global successes like Cruze demonstrate we’re on track and hitting the mark with customers,” said Marc Comeau, vice-president of sales, service and marketing at GM of Canada. “With gas prices on the rise, customers have embraced fuel efficiency leaders such as the Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain, with more to come this fall when Chevrolet launches Volt, Sonic and Orlando.” Passenger car sales grew 14% in June, with the Chevrolet Cruze, Canadian Car of the Year, leading the way. As a result of continued increasing demand for Cruze, GM’s compact car sales have risen 24% year-to-date. Customer demand for GM’s fuel-efficient crossovers also increased sharply in June, and the Canadian-built Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain delivered their best months on record with combined sales rising 72%. In addition, GM’s midsize crossover vehicles performed well, with the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, and GMC Acadia increasing combined sales 24%. Furthermore, momentum for the Cadillac SRX continues, with sales up 18%, its 18th consecutive month of growth.
